Well, the summer holidays are sadly nearly over (or already long gone in some places) and the panic-buying of school equipment can now begin. Get your shopping list sorted with our handy Back to School 10 Best. This week’s topic is lunchboxes and bags. I’m rather tempted by a couple of these for myself! Also, see our guide to the coolest water bottles in town.
Blafre owl lunchbox, €19.95, Shak-Shuka. It’s yellow, it’s an owl – all you need to know. (Plus it’s all eco and stuff – yay!)
Beatrix NY Fernando the Bear lunch bag, £29.50, Peanut & Pip. The Rolls-Royce of lunchbags – durable but cute, too.
Rice DK bento boxes, £8.99 each, Sisters Guild. Tiered bento boxes are ideal for the type of snacky picnic lunches children adore. And these come with cutlery as well.
Rusty the Fox lunch bag, £4.95, Dotcomgiftshop. Yes, everyone has them, but they are super-practical, bargainous, eco-friendly and this fox print is divine.
Crocodile lunch bag, £14, Cath Kidston. Love this insulated bag – another classic pattern from the queen of print.
Invotis car lunch box, £10.80, Stylish Life. If this won’t tempt your little one to eat their lunch I don’t know what will!
SkipHop panda lunch bag, £14, Becky & Lolo. You can’t beat SkipHop’s animal bags are the perfect size for little hands and can be popped in the washing machine.
Birthday Surprise lunch tin, £10, Belle & Boo. An altogether more classic take on lunch – cucumber sandwiches, anyone?
Yay Lunch! lunchbox, £5.99, HunkyDoryHome. Loving this joyful approach to the midday meal – and the sunny shade can’t fail to put a smile on your face.
Luckies lunch bag, £8.50, Amazon. A tongue-in-cheek tribute to the all-American brown paper bag with magnetic closure.
